A MI PATRIA / TO MY MOTHERLAND / INANG-BAYAN is an anthology of Dr. Jose Rizal’s poems interpreted in Filipino Sign Language [FSL] that tells of his deep love, longing, and respect for his country. This is the first-ever translation of his poems in visual-gestural form. The film aims to show the beauty of FSL, and to tell the Department of Education that FSL exists and should be used and recognized as a medium of instruction in teaching Deaf Filipinos.
